Neutrabs = neutrophil count (absolute number of cells)
Lymphozyten abs = lymphocytes (absolute number of cells)
Monozyten abs = monocytes (absolute number of cells)

Obviously anyone who didn't know this would not be doing a medical translation, surely.

Thank you, SJLD - I do think any of us have the right to overlook obvious translations under stress and also the right to progress in our experience remembering that none of us were born with medical terminology in our genes.
Thank you again, Susanna
